Watching Don and Andy playing neighbors is heartwarming. These two belonged together on the small screen. They have such a charming ease when playing two guys in the South.

Matlock: The Second Season - DVD Review

Matlock is the only mystery show the lowers the blood pressure. Every other crime-solving TV show applies the heat to create dramatic tension. They amp up the music, overplay the sound effects and edit the action moments to startle. That’s not how things are down in Atlanta. Ben Matlock (Andy Griffith) allowed his cases to naturally unravel to expose the truth. This is a Southern drama with its causal courtroom nature. Nothing gets too hectic. Even the murders and fights have a leisurely pace. Perhaps this is the secret to why senior citizens are addicted to Matlock. They can enjoy a good crime yarn without being visually victimized. Plus there’s the classic charm of Andy Griffith keeping the peace as he practices the law. »»

Success arrived in the early ‘70s with Cannon. He didn't even have to diet for the gig. But the good times didn't end there. After guest starring on Matlock, Conrad found himself fighting crime in primetime instead of collecting his Social Security check.
